Bait Sam

I started this portrait of Sam.


After transferring the drawing to my toned Colourfix paper I started applying color. I started with his face, trying to put back in some of the detail that the drawing lost in the transfer. This is what it looked like then.


Here is a a close up of his face. Hmmm… maybe shouldn’t look  too close, you can really see the grain of the paper.


I think I should have started on a larger scale. The full size of the paper is  13 X 19, which means that the area of his face is just a little bigger than a square inch. That makes it hard to get a likeness.
